History brought to life

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra (OSO) and École Glenmore Elementary is back with an award winning show.

“How Canada Came to Be” will be played in celebration of Canada’s Sesquicentennial and the OSO’s annual Education Week.

More than 7000 children throughout the Okanagan will experience this story come to life.

The interactive show tells the story of how Canada came to be through storytelling and song. 

“I was inspired to write ‘How Canada Came to Be’ because I wanted children to learn about their Canadian identity, to learn an overview of Canada’s history and to learn how to develop their singing voices through the folk music of their own country”,  notes Rhonda Draper, who wrote the award winning production.

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is the third largest professional Symphony Orchestra in British Columbia, entertaining residents since 1960. 

The public performance will take place in Kelowna on Thursday, March 16 at 6:00 p.m. at Evangel Church,

Tickets can be purchased in advance online.
